Lockport, NY (WKBW) - The teen accused of killing a five-year-old little girl in Niagara Falls late in the summer of 2012 has pled guilty.
17-year-old John Freeman entered a guilty plea to second degree murder and tampering with evidence, in the death of Isabella Tennant.
The judge says by pleading guilty, he faces a sentence of 20-22 years to life in prison.
According to the Niagara Gazette, Freeman had originally been scheduled for a ruling to let him use an "insanity defense."
Freeman killed Tennant while she was staying with her great-grandmother in Niagara Falls in late August. Her body was found in a garbage can a few blocks away.
Freeman will be sentenced on September 5th.
19-year-old Tyler Best is accused of tampering with evidence. He is accused of helping Freeman move Tennant's body.
